assistance to be rendered, at what point did he give that order. why did no one show up. general dempsey says the military respond appropriately. i will ask them what is an inappropriate response. the system failed. but the person i blame the most for benghazi is president obama. it's his foreign policy strategy that aloud this conflict to become a death trap. he's the one to share the blame above all others. martha: senator mccain poibtsd out the last two seals were killed in the final hour of a 7-hour siege. it makes the argument you can't respond to the second 911 call and they can't get there in time a little more complicated, doesn't it? >> it it's a system failure. when general dempsey says the d.o.d. responded appropriately. i think not. not one d.o.d. asset reached these people for over 7 hours. i just find it dumbfounding to believe that we could not provide any military assistance on 9/11 of all days. and given the history of the threat. reports out of libya and the terror situation. this is a system failure. no one is pressing the president. the mainstream media is giving the obama

. >>> we just got this information. we gt an early look at the joint chiefs of staff, martin dempsey's testimony later today, he's going to acknowledge that the u.s. diverted a drone to benghazi within minutes of learning of the attack on the u.s. consulate. carrie, i guess we shouldn't be surprised. >> no. i mean, it's really fascinating. this is a program that really for -- until now the administration wouldn't even acknowledge exists. in their freedom of information requests put in by journalists, the journalists would get a response that the government would neither confirm nor deny the existence or nonexistence of memos that describe the legal basis for this program. so this is a really sort of fascinating turn that we're getting just a lot more information and, you know, the administration is acknowledging, you know, that this program is as comprehensive as this, even the fact that a drone was diverted to benghazi is just something that, you know, who would have expected. >> and nia-malika, this is the kind of thing that i think people expect, but there are 11 states considerin

. what question would you ask leon panetta today and martin dempsey if you had a chance to? >> i don't think there's a big conspiracy. we didn't do what we could have. the military did not do something, they didn't fire whatever. my question would be why was there no plan? it's like if you close down your fire department and somebody calls and says my house is on fire. it would take awhile to get everybody back in there and get the fire trucks moving. on the other hand, if you had the fire department standing by, which is what we should have -- standing by -- we could have reacted. >>brian: when this book is written, you take your real life and connections and put them into novel concepts so they come out looking like real stories, one of which was syria. you put a call in to your friends and said what is going on there, i'm going to go research this. what happened? >> i try to be as current as i can. i want current events to be as realistic as i can be. current events are current, and i have a buddy of mine who is much smarter than i am on this type of stuff. i was heading over ther

in the day we heard of secretary panetta and the chairman of the joint chiefs dempsey on the benghazi attack. there was a lot of meat and substance in that, as well. worthy of a lot of scrutiny. these are interesting topics and the senators take it seriously to try to find out more and brn nan would be responsible for so much of this if he does go to the cia as expected. >> thank you so much. now back to the hearings. >> there clearly were a number of things, many things, that i read in that report that were very concerning and disturbing to me and ones that i would want to look in to immediately if i were to be confirmed as cia director. talked about misimaginement of the programs. misrepresentations of the information, inaccurate information and it was damning in the language as far as the nature of activities carried out. i am eager to see the agency's response to that report. i read those 300 pages. i look forward if confirmed to reading the entire 6,000-page volume because it is of such gravity and importance. but, chairman, i do not yet have and nor has the cia finished its review of t

, four armed military assets to respond. that is not just my view or gender dempsey's view. it was the view of the accountability review board that studied what happened on that day. in the months and the tragedy, at the temporary mission facility in the nearby annex in benghazi, we have learned there were actually two short duration attacks that occurred is six hours apart. again, there was no specific intelligence that indicated that a second attack would occur at the annex located two miles away. the bottom line is this -- we were not dealing with a prolonged or continuous assault which could have been brought to win end by us military response. although we had forces deployed to the region. time, distance, a lack of an adequate warning, even said moved very quickly on the ground, prevented a more immediate response. >> tonight we will show you that hearing in its entirety, beginning at 8:00 eastern on the c-span2. >> there is no prescription or role model or cookbook for being first lady. if you look back at the lives of martha washington or abigail adams or dolly madis
